Book Research or Vacation Planning?

To catch everyone up, I am in the process of writing my fifth paranormal/fantasy novel. It is a story about a girl that is tricked by Loki and transported (not unlike Star Trek!) into ancient Greece. There she meets a very handsome demigod and, oh, the fun they have! Okay, everything isn’t all fun and games. I am still in the process of figuring out exactly what’s going to happen.

Crete and Mitsis Laguna Resort

In my early research of Greece, I came across some very nice resorts where people go to get some sun and sand. My main character gets to stay at Mitsis Laguna Resort. I truly adore at this hotel. What would it be like walking through the hallways, swimming in the massive pool, or eating in the luxurious restaurant? I won’t lie, in the back of my mind, I thought if my book made it big I would go to a place like this! Wouldn’t it be great to go somewhere all in the name of research?

But for the rest of us, that have to work, keep track of kids, etc. we can’t go to a luxury resort. So, I get to live vicariously through Holland and her adventures. If I close my eyes, I almost can image feeling the white sand between my toes and hearing the waves wash on shore.

Other News:
 I just self-published A Bequest of Blood published in paperback form. It is now available on Create Space (and Amazon) for purchase or if you happen to meet me at an event, I will have some books with me! I am also working on Immortal Moonlight and prepping it to move to paperback! Stay tuned and I will post more about my new cover designs.
